(Festus) There could be a lot of movement when it comes to new businesses coming to the City of Festus this year. Much of it will take place on the Goodwin property located south of the Lowes and R.P. Lumber locations along Shapiro Drive. Festus City Administrator Greg Camp says he met with Larry Goodwin a few weeks ago, and things will be taking shape very soon.
The only current business agreement and commitment on that property is Hampton Inn and Suites. A Kentucky Fried Chicken was built on the north end of the property a little over a year ago.
